I have been working at Party City full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I received excellent compensation and was able to earn a healthy bonus. Decent benefits and they have learned how to run a busy Halloween season.

Cons

Change in Upper Management has caused turmoil. Open hostility between vice president and regional people made things uncomfortable. Had a very hard time finding people who wanted to be promoted into this mess. They have also shifted towards having salaried employees do less supervisory work, something they've been successfully sued for in the past.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change your upper management people if you are not comfortable with them. Keep politics out of the stores

    I have been working at Party City full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary can be good once you get into management but you have to push for it

    Cons

    Upper management are not operations oriented, they change things constantly and institute policies and procedures that are ineffective and have no real logic or purpose to them.
    In the years I have been with the company it has gotten progressively worse, you will never hear a thank you or good job only why didn't you do this or it took to long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone who knows how to operate a retail store and take some classes on how to treat people with dignity and respect!
